The guys are back with a brand new edition. This time, they kick things off with 80s rocker Robert Palmer. After talking about hair bands and 80s music, they dig into Batman v. Superman. That leads to a discussion about the upcoming Ghostbusters movie. Later, they get into the Adam Carolla Show. Adam recently announced that the show will clean up its language for certain shows in order to court higher end advertisers. The guys eventually get into the battle royale between Louisiana and Mississippi when it comes to the bottom rankings. That leads down a rabbit trail including the local area, including New Orleans. Later, the dudes chat about the punk rock mentality. Toward the end, they turn to a twist on the Guitar Hero concept. Of course, they have to goof on Robert Palmer's Addicted to Love at the conclusion.

Later, they get into the interesting battles fought in online forums. The conversation then turns to the ubiquity of video due to iPhones and the like.
